Pluto Loses Planet Status: August 24, 2006
Pluto and Chiron
Pluto! Pluto! I will miss you so!
Gone from the textbooks and the acronymic memorization sentences
that will now trail off without, "Period."
After Neptune, hanging in space, a semicolon;
Kicked out of the solar system!
Reclassified to “dwarf planet”!
(Why add a jab
to your galactic demotion?)
In quiet diligence in your oblique orbit
same as before you were ever seen
Worse all over,
I suppose things could be,
if this had happened
